You can’t neatly divide the Traits of A Sagittarius into good and bad, high or low, but I did it anyway. Peruse the lists and see if you concur!
The Positive Traits Of A Sagittarius
SPUNKY: Sagittarians are like the people in personal hygiene advertisements would be if they weren’t lying. Sagg really is as comfortable in a ballgown as they are in a pair of jeans, as happy bushwalking as they are flying into an exciting new city. Even weirder, they’re like lovers in rom-coms. Sagg girls really do come striding out of some shop, swing their shiny hair around, smile at a cute child/dog/love interest, and then leap into their snazzy sports car. Sagg guys wake up in the morning looking hot, sing in the shower, bounce downstairs for a smoothie and zoom off to tennis or sailing.
They’re High On Endorphins, Hubris And Maybe A Dreamweed
JOYOUS: Saggs are keen to maintain a high level of personal optimism and glee in life. The one time a month they get around to cleaning the house, they will be deliriously happy with the way everything gleams. More dour types accuse them of being on drugs. They’re not. Oh, all right, maybe some of them are. But their love of living bubbles up from deep within them, like mineral water from a deep secret source at the base of a volcano. They’re idealist so while they do angst about genetically engineered food and endangered wild animals; they keep it real and positive. They’re natural born activists, fiery and idealistic.
FUN-LOVING: Like Spanish painter Picasso’s Sagg lover Francoise Gilot, they think life is a one-way ticket, it can only be lived forward. They have a huge appetite for everything life has to offer. A Sagittarian would volunteer for a backyard cloning experiment if they were in the mood. Saggs love flying off to a great beach or going halfway across the planet for a fabulous party. A Sagg can be at a ski-resort toga party on a Saturday night and back in time for Sunday morning’s aquarobics class before heading off to lunch.
The Traits Of Sagittarius Include Being Able To Puncture Pomposity And Elevate Everyone’s Mood
CANDID: Saggs can puncture the most pompous bore with a well-timed quip. As novelist Mark Twain wrote, “power, money, persuasion, supplication, persecution – these can lift at a colossal humbug – push it a little, weaken it a little over a century; but only laughter can blow it to rags and atoms at a blast. Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.” Incidentally, Twain once sent all his friends telegrams saying, “All is discovered – flee at once,” and to his amusement many of them did.
IN-THE-MOMENT: Sagittarius loves to savor the moment, relishing the abundance of life whether they are skydiving, larking it up on a cocktail bar, or doing something as mundane as scraping a squashed snail off their foot. Like 19th-century British novelist Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice), Sagittarians “think only of the past as its remembrance gives pleasure.”
MOTIVATIONAL: A Sagittarian’s sheer delight in living inspires all around them to go for it. And Sagg’s bawdy good humor enlivens everything. Their presence and cheery good nature elevate the dourest of moods.
The Negative Traits Of A Sagittarius
IRRESPONSIBLE: Sagittarians can walk – or sprint more like it – away from any problem. And what is a problem for these people? Responsibility or, as they call it, ‘’negativity’’. They can’t hack the idea of being unable to cope so they won’t cope. See? It’s a choice that Sagg has made – because they’re dynamic, adventurous, and free-willed. Hey, they didn’t want to hang around and put up with that negative crap. Their idea of dealing with an issue is to make it your problem. Sagittarians are prone to storming out and telling someone to get their crap together even when it is the Sagg’s crap. Even worse is the Sagg who’s done therapy: “I’m picking up that you’re in a resentful place right now…” before galloping out of the door lecturing you about being your best self. If responsibility were a place, Sagg wouldn’t even be able to find it. Some Saggs don’t like the word “place.” It sounds too fixed. They prefer “space.” Sagittarians have spaces in their heart, not places. They have their space in the sun and their moral-high space.
TACTLESS: Sagg lack of tact is legendary. They drop the most amazing “did she just say what I think she said?” clangers and they don’t even work at it. Never let a Sagg wing it for a speech at a wedding, funeral or christening. As everyone cringes, Sagg will smirk, thinking, “at least I tell it like it is.”
You Say Ego, Sagittarius Thinks Self-Esteem
SELFISH: You say ego, Sagg thinks self-esteem. Because so many of them seem bohemian, their ego can go undetected. It will be swamped in a sea of intellectual discourse, full-on raves about principle, and general Sagg swagger. But it’s there, even if this lot start off every second sentence with “I don’t want to boast but…” They get frustrated when their support system slacks off. They don’t get that it’s not the done thing to screech “don’t you know who I am?” at their family. A Sagg can think the fact that their partner barely has the energy to do anything other than nod “yes, dear” is a good thing. It means the person is becoming accustomed to being a valet or handmaiden to Sagg genius. Then they act all appalled when an outbreak of “negativity” occurs in their life. Many a Sagg has returned from a surfing safari with their ex-lover to find their home empty.
FULL OF CRAP: It would be so cool if Sagittarians came equipped with a mute button. They go on and on and on. Ideally, like the characters on television, they would not know that they had been muted. They carry with them an invisible soapbox on which they leap to deliver their interminable preachy raves. They can be so in love with their righteousness that they don’t even realize they are pulverizing someone else’s psyche. Not deliberately, of course. Our Sagg is totally into freedom and self-expression for all life forms. Well-brought-up Saggs can manage to shut up and not interrupt. But all of them secretly think that the tedious interval when someone else is talking is a small gap for them to catch a breath while their mind boggles at their profundity.
